Maybe it's a question of perception. Anything less than a permanent IP and/or range ban is just like shouting "Oy!" at a dog that's put a test paw on a sofa it knows it's not allowed on.
|>>|| No. 15189
There are multiple tools for community management and a ban with no explanation is one of the least helpful in terms of getting people to understand.
I don't want to be too critical or backseat mod. I like here. I just think stating the reasons behind bans and 'voices of God' posts are better tools for teaching.

I can't get the red text function to function and I found a post from 2009 on the mods board asking purps to make a warn rather than ban option.
|>>|| No. 15192
You tried to copy and paste from that thread. You can't do that because the BBCode contains a soft hyphen to prevent the tags from activating.
|>>|| No. 15194
I also got told to not do that and mod with a little m, so I’ve rarely used it unless warning people about topics which are legally grey, like drug hook ups.
If purp says it’s fine, then I’ll change up how I mod but it’ll probably just start more cunt offs and people saying the mods are flexing. You literally can’t win. Being faceless heathen hedonists is more mysterious.
Also, why can’t I marple text but indigo can?

>but abusing power is why people become mods
You might be on to something, but it's worth noting that you don't get modded here by asking - purps (or whichever poor admin is looking after the site now that purps is neck deep in ladycock) asks you. It's foisted upon those deemed suitable. When I got modded it was, I believe, basically because I'd been here so long and never asked for it.
As said, this place largely moderates itself and maintains a certain posting style without much intervention. Most shite grammar or 4channy posts are complained at by posters before mods ever have a chance to ban them. The red text merely underlines the point.
Typing in red or modposting seems unnecessary on such a small board and far too authoritarian. I'd much rather just bitch at you in normal user mode if you make a shit post (that doesn't warrant a ban but is borderline) than start telling you to calm down with a mod post/red text. That feels pretty reddit to me. I'm just here to quietly delete the youtube links to child pageants.

Indigo can type in indigo text, but it turns out indigo looks a lot like marple in coloured text. Soz.

>you don't get modded here by asking - purps asks you
I've never understood how this works, given that we are, of course, Anonymous, and as has been mentioned drug hookups are banned, which from what I surmise is the social event of choice of the various degenerates that inhabit this place. purps supposedly gets to know you by inviting you for a pint, but if I wanted to be 'known' to the extent the admins can look up my telephone number I'd post somewhere else, and purps isn't exactly a hacker on toast. How did he find out who you are?

Every one who posts here has their Amazon advertising ID attached to their IP. If he deems you worthy, he posts you an official .gs staff t-shirt and a gift note with your username and password.
|>>|| No. 15200
We can post with HTML so yeah. The RH box in your special secret posting menu.
I don't think every mod has met purps for a pint.
|>>|| No. 15201
I think it mostly means you need to be in the IRC clique (now discord) (so not actually just an anonymous poster) once there was a party actually organised on the boards that was many moons ago I'm lead to believe from the photos after posted on here purps1 has a foot fetish.
|>>|| No. 15202
No poster is anonymous to the admin though. Picture purps hunched over his shed, monitoring posts by IP, awarding or removing points on his clipboard for weeks, months even, until finally he deems someone worthy. Then he tells you to get on IRC and gives you the private ceremony.
I think that's how it went.
|>>|| No. 15203
Yeah I remember purps taking a picture of my shoe, doesn't mean he could use it to track me down and offer me mod privileges. I'm also on the discord from /e/ but the vast majority of it is just being regaled with tales from a lad in the merchant navy.
The whole mod recruitment process just seems very esoteric to me.

Is he still knocking about? I've never bothered with the IRC or Discord clique but he used to post a fair bit on the boards. Actually, didn't we have a few merchant navy lads?
|>>|| No. 15207
The whole clique thing is a lie told by a mentalist who asked to be a mod and was told no.
The discord chat is alright, because even if you’re not online when someone messages you can still catch up with what’s going on.
As for being modded, right place wrong time. “Oi, we need a mod m8 here is a gram of coke go delete this CP spam.” The rest is history.

Phone posting from work and it’s a ballache, I didn’t intend to reply to you and I’m not deleting it again.
|>>|| No. 15210
The phone posting on here really is a shitshow. Is it ever going to get fixed?
|>>|| No. 15214
Thought you were taking the piss, sorry, there really is a setting to fix this.
All these wasted years - cheers lad.

So the take away from people complaining about bans they didn't like was to start doing hidden bans is it? Smart.
|>>|| No. 15221
I'm not so sure we were complaining of bans, rather comments and questions regarding our culture.
|>>|| No. 15269
Does it count as ban evasion if I'm not the perp? I moved into this flat recently and just tried posting through the new landline. I'm apparently banned for >>13610 who I'm hoping wasn't the nice Romanian chap who lived here before I arrived. Amusingly his permaban was filed at 9PM Valentine's day 2016, rather suggesting that if he was balls-deep in anything that night it was probably Made in China.
tl;dr please unban 126.96.36.199, I ain't done nuffin.
|>>|| No. 15270
Looks as though it was a range ban so probably not the fault of your Romanian chap.
|>>|| No. 15272
It's not a fantastic area to be honest, I can easily imagine a lonely pol-type being shacked up in an attic around here.
In any case thank you for the timely resolution.

Since when was casual dolphin rape not acceptable around here?
(A good day to you Sir!)

We've been needing a page to see the last 10-20 ban messages so we can try to match them up to recent bans for about a decade now.
|>>|| No. 15307
That's a depressing amount of CP that you have to deal with, assuming that's representative.
|>>|| No. 15308
Do all of those need permabans or would one/two week bans suffice for some of them? Seems a little trigger happy.
|>>|| No. 15309
Thankfully the rate of hardcore CP has mostly ended, those are just bans for images and videos that would be perfectly fine if shared between ballet mums but were posted here in a sexual context, making them CP by UK law and also creepy enough that the poster needs to fuck off.
|>>|| No. 15311
Be told, lad. Knocking Are Greta or climate change hysteria is an instapermaban offense 'round these parts.
This is a local board for local people, we'll have no trouble here...
|>>|| No. 15312
Don't you think giving someone a permaban for posting a Facebook style image is a bit much? Caveat: based solely on the ban reason.
Apart from the paedo stuff that log suggests you're a bit too eager and keen to reach straight for the permaban as the default option, especially if some people are getting banned for 'wrongthink' or clearly joking around.
|>>|| No. 15313
It's generally assumed that you all know how to ban evade, as 09908d is clearly doing. It's also a hassle to give shorter bans due to the interface which is something I raised a very long time ago as an issue.
|>>|| No. 15314
>that log suggests you're a bit too eager and keen to reach straight for the permaban
Bear in mind that any ban that has expired will not be shown in this log, so it will always be mostly the permabans represented there.
|>>|| No. 15317
What are you gonna do, huh, what the FUCK are you gonna do when the world runs out of IP addresses for you to ban? The website will be empty because no-one will be able to post here. Didn't think that through eh?

In this light, my approach to idiots on my social media this last week and modlad's approach to idiots on his SpudChan seem eerily similar.

"Use the report function instead of posting rage faces. >>/emo/29633"
But I didn't post any rage faces, modlads. I was just questioning otherlad's ban. Have a heart.
